Prince of Broadway (2010)
Prince of Broadway is a tender comedy of fatherhood, family and love, directed by Sean Baker (IFC’s “Greg the Bunny,” “Take Out,” MTV’s “Warren the Ape.”) This is the story of Lucky, a charismatic hustler eking out a living in the underbelly of New York's wholesale fashion district. An illegal immigrant from Ghana, Lucky makes ends meet by soliciting shoppers on the street with knock-off brand merchandise. Life is good for Lucky, but his dreams of a bigger life are suddenly upended when a child is thrust into his world by a woman who insists the toddler is his son. Set in the shadow of the Flatiron building and soaked in the colorful bustle of urban realism, PRINCE OF BROADWAY reveals unseen lives creating their own knock-off of the American Dream.
